  1. Good replacement for Ryan, plenty of experience so i think he should not have too many problems.Squad looks much stronger than at the start of last season si i will be surprised if we dont make the top Three.Bradford look to be in the brown stick stuff so as long as we don't slip up in games we should win ie Barrow and Dewsbury at home we will be fine.Webster was a decent half back when playing so he will know how to get the best out of Chissy.
  2. Thought Tronto deserved their win but only by 8 to 10 point margin.Our lads were heroic in defeat and have put everything on the line for the club and supporters.So proud to be a Fev supporter after this seasons efforts.And i supported Wakey until i was 21 and saw the light .over 50yrs a capper and will die a capper witjh a rugby ball and Fev shirt on my box.
  3. I think our forwards can match Toronto's and i wouldnt swap Chissy and McLelland at half back for theirs.Like i said in a previous post i just think they are a bit stronger out wide.Who would have given Norwich a chance a few weeks ago against Man City but they won 3-2.So we have a chance and all the pressue will be on Toronto.Just read the above post seems like Blue Pike is getting excited allready.
  4. Fantastic performance from the Salford team.And a joy to whatch the celebrations by their fans behind the sticks.Early in the season some poster were saying why don't Salford change their name to Manchester.Well the support they have had the last few weeks tells you why.I posted that Ian Watson was a canny half back and is developing into a very good coach.For me Ian and James Ford at York have been a revelation this season getting much more than expected out of players who are not just in it for the money.
  5. For the last few years prices to attend Championship matches have increased for the casual fan who attends on match day.Early membership or season ticket for clubs regular supporters are OK but i would like to see away supporters paying a little less.However it is a fine line as Towcester Racecourse in Northhamptonshire only charge addmission at Bank Holiday meetings on other race days it was Free.And they have just gone bust althought they are trying to save Greyhound racing,the track is opposite the stands in the centre of the course.The landowner at Towcester is Lord Hesketh who gave James Hunt his chance in Formula 1 That folded in a couple of seasons due to lack of sponsorship.
  6. 33/1 were the odds on the start of the Cup rounds.On the day Fev could be backed at 7/2 to 4/1 to win in 80min. with 12-14 points start on the Handicap priced at 1/1 or 11/10 much the same oddsa as Saturday night.
  7. Good shout i think the only way promotion to S.L. could work if it was every 2 years.
  8. I think the Refs so far in our play off games have been good.They encouraged an open game and Robert Hicks decision last week when Toulouse had two disallowed by losing contact inches from grounding spot on.My only complaint would have been allowing York a bit too much time in the ruck.Saturday night we have about the same chance as we did against Hull F.C. in 82/83 and look what happened then.Like i said before i'm at a gig Saturday night for my birthday so i will have to dodge the score untill early Sunday morning when i will watch the recording before going to bed.Good luck to all the players and coaching team .They have given us a season to remember and rekindle pride in our club.
  9. Throw in another quid a medal and they could have them in a nice presentation box.The girls deserve better.
  10. To be fair our coach Ryan Carr came in at the last minute with no pre season.I think he was on a years contract with the option of a second year if both parties agreed.Three hard away matches will have taken some juice out of the lads but i wouldn't swap their forwards or half backs for ours if fully fit.As a coffin dodger i am enjoying the ride.
  11. Toulouse offered more of an attacking threat than Toronto who seem to play percentage rugby.If fully recovered i think our pack will at least match or better Torontos.Only fear is that Torontos left side attack may trouble our right side defence.Would like John Davies covering that but he is invaluable with his defence all over the field.He reads the game so well confirmed by his follow up on Chissys kicks.Ryan Carr has studied the match videos because the Toulouse full back was in the defensive line and not sweeping the goal area which opened it up for Chissy and Davies.As an ex Bookie i would price the game up as 4/7 Toronto 6/4 Fev so we have proved allready we can beat the odds.Win or lose WHAT A SEASON.
  12. How good was Locky once AGAIN?.John Davies was drained at the end he could hardly get off the floor.Just hope tonights tremendous performance hasn't taken too much out of the lads for next Saturday.Another 100% team effort from all the players so it would be wrong to pick out individuals.Biggest match for over 20yrs next Saturday night and i will have to record it.I am going to a Gig to celebrate my birthday next week as my sons partner is playing The Red Shed in Wakey.
  13. Old saying Blue Pike Money comes to Money.Hope you are drawing,When i was manager of William Hills, Ferrybridge John Marsdens dad had a tenner on Fev at 33/1 to win the R.L. Cup 82/83 season. He was first to the counter when i opened up Monday morning and of course i paid up with a smile.On the match day i passed a Mecca office in Wembley and they offered 11/10 Fev +14 start so i emptied my pockets only £29 left on Fev and drew the winnings on the way back to Wembley Central after the match.
  14. If the ball carrying arm touches the ground but not the ball the play should still be live.However if an opponent touches him while the arm and not the ball is in contact with the ground that would be a drop out under the sticks.The previous post is spot on.
